Thursday of the 2nd Week of Advent

Some people are quite fearful of different things. Some are fearful of what is going to happen to their future, some are fearful of their health or family situation, some are fearful of being lonely and abandoned, some are even fearful of unnecessary things. But as Christians, what should be our attitude towards fear? Should we be fearful in the first place?

In today's reading, we are assured of God's love and care: "I, the Lord, your God, I am holding you by the right hand; I tell you, ‘Do not be afraid, I will help you.’" When we have trust and confidence in God's help and providence, there is no reason to be fearful. God will take care of things in His time. Are we willing to let God be in control and let Him keep us in His loving embrace?
